And the basball season has begun in Cincinnati! Today should be a holiday.

Oh... well, that's good. I thought maybe there was an interesting story behind it though.

It is a holiday in Cincinnati. Never been for opening day, but several friends say it is packed.

Disney while pregnant in the hottest month? If you pull that off, go buy a lottery ticket quickly.

Makes for a long day, but worth it to see a team like OKC. How was the game?

My wife and I went to WDW on our honeymoon 15 years ago and we've been back four times since. We have a family condo at Bonnet Creek and enjoy going there as often as our schedules permit with our three kids.

As the ID suggests, I'm a big UT Vols fan and am roughing it living in Bamaland.
Welcome. Dues are payable in Dole whips, bacon, beer, or cake. Just sent them all to me and I will distribute them. DW and I did our honeymoon there 13 years ago. We are DVC and enjoy the multiple trips.

Welcome. Dues are payable in Dole whips, bacon, beer, or cake. You get the deal. You don't have to wait 4 weeks - you are a dad now. Have any trips planned for the young en yet?

So, are we supposed to text and drive?

This is our first Spring Break in three years at home. We did Smokies, Boardwalk, and Hilton Head. So, definitely suffering from Disney withdrawal in cancelling this trip. Had a nice first day at the Evansville zoo with the dds. Walked around the mall and had some Auntie Anne pretzels. Tomorrow is a sleepover with dd's friend, her reward for all As last quarter. I think I'm raising the requirement to all 100s before the next sleepover. It looks like we may try Opry Mills Mall on Thursday - Rainforest Cafe, DW spend a lot of $, and meet up with Philip.

Had a Solo EPCOT Day - HOLY CROWDED!! Did a few things I've never done before...Explored Mexico Pavilion - Saw the Voices of Liberty and the American Adventure Show.....Saw O'Canada. - O Why?!? (darn you Brian) - Rode Journey into Imagination (it was the only ride that was a walk-on). Waited 20 minutes in line for Spaceship Earth! Saw the food booths - enjoyed the food from the food booths! .
It is difficult being home for Spring Break, but after seeing those wait times, I am glad I did.

We're planning ADRs at Chef Mickey's the night we arrive, CRT and Hollywood and Vine. Can't wait. I'm off to update my signature.
We will miss you by a few days. Still, good luck in planning.

Opening day would be fun. Hanging the rain may not be as much. I would like to go to a Reds game for opening day one year.

Quick Trip Report:

Weather at the beach - sucked. Cold Windy with a little rain. (thanks Brian )

Spent a Day at MK - HOLY CROWDED! 11's on the crowd calendar. They were at a Phase 3 shutdown at MK the day we were there. Forced me to cancel my ADR at 'Ohana because I wouldn't be let back in if we left the park!

Had a Solo EPCOT Day - HOLY CROWDED!! Did a few things I've never done before...Explored Mexico Pavilion - Saw the Voices of Liberty and the American Adventure Show.....Saw O'Canada. - O Why?!? (darn you Brian) - Rode Journey into Imagination (it was the only ride that was a walk-on). Waited 20 minutes in line for Spaceship Earth! Saw the food booths - enjoyed the food from the food booths!


I'd like to say it's glad to be back, but it isn't. Mondays suck!

Prayers to those that need them....Welcome! To all the new members.
My plan worked out splendidly...

What's wrong with O Canada? I love that show... I am the guy in there that cheers loudly every time I see Joe Carter's home run...

Did you see Patrick in UK?

Some zoo pictures. The zoo was fairly empty, so we got some close up time with the animals.



Rhino.



Camel.



Turtles. "dad, what are those turtles doing?". Trying to escape.

I figured we'd miss you with the new plan but it has the kids only missing one week of school and we get really low crowds the whole time. Plus we will be there over our 10th anniversary.

It is cool to return on your anniversary. We managed to get champaign flutes from CRT with their ensignia on them.

The only reason you are last on the list is because I know that she will DEFINITELY spend too much money, but I wasn't sure if you would be able that day. I'll text once I know some details.

If I roughly know around what time, I can run it through my supervisor, he usually doesn't care and my work is 5 min from oprymills
